Challenger Baseball opens for 11th season

   Saturday was Opening Day for the 11th season for Challenger Baseball, with both the Blackcats and Ladycats joining for opening ceremony and all three games, said Jordan Brown,  Challenger Baseball Director. 
   The cake auction consisted of six cakes that brought in over $6,000. She said that money is used to continue adapting fields and sidewalks for our wheelchairs and to buy equipment like beeping balls for our visually impaired students.
   “We had over 100 volunteers come out to ‘buddy’ with our players. In Challenger baseball, every player gets a buddy.
   “The buddy stays with them the whole game and is like a personal coach, wheelchair pusher, hand holder, or whatever the player needs.”

   Wellness Matagorda County has a water-related theme for its semi-annual fun run and walk Saturday, April 22.

   The facility will include an indoor pool for the general public and student athletes, therapy pool, small water park, spectator areas, and meeting rooms, added Loy Sneary, WMC Co-Chairman.
   Registration for Run for the Waves begins at 6:30 a.m. 
   That’s also when warmups begin with Abby McConaha and Devin Mongrain, the new Wellness Coordinator at the Wellness and Rehabilitation Center, at 7:15 a.m.
   The walk begins at 7:30 a.m., and the run begins 8 a.m. at the new Wellness Dome, next to Matagorda Regional Medical Center, with free parking behind the Dome.
